We decided to come here after seeing it on TV. There was a long queue to get in as you can't reserve tables but we only had to wait 15mins to get our table and it was well worth the wait. The concept is brilliant....More

If you want steak and frites then look no further. The steak was superbly cooked and came in entrecôte's famous sauce. Service was quick and the price was very reasonable for Bordeaux. Make sure you get there early as it gets very busy.

Honestly the best steak and frites that both my Husband and I have ever had! Extremely tender, great value for money and the "special sauce" is amazing!

We went twice in our trip to Bordeaux and loved it! I am not even a huge steak fan but thought it was great!

We saw this place mentioned on Rock Stein's long weekend documentary. As he said, there is always a queue before it even opens at 1915, so you need to plan to go here. We waited in the bar next door and joined a small queue...More

Had heard about l'entrecote before we arrived in Bordeaux and decided to give it a try. You don't book, just turn up and queue. We arrived right on opening time (7.15), there was a long line, but the restaurant is huge and we were seated...More

I had spent the entire day on a wine tasting tour with Bordovino and felt like a steak. This restaurant, apparently part of a chain, had excellent reviews, and my tour ended less than a block away, and a half hour before they opened. When...More

Thanks for the reply but we went as they emailed me and told me it was gluten free. When we got there I was told it was gluten free without the sauce! I was dreading ploughing my way through a steak without sauce but it was... More

The unique menu remained unchanged since the beginning. This formula is a decked slice of sirloin of 170 grams accompanied by french fries and its famous sauce. His son Henry, opened a restaurant in Toulouse in 1962, in Bordeaux in 1966, in Nantes in 1980, in Montpellier in 1990, and finally, in Lyon in 1999. These restaurants are characterized by scots and black mural, a lemon yellow topping and hostesses dressed with yellow apron and black blouse. The exterior is beautified by yellow and black blinds vertical stripes for the best effect.
